AI, Art and the Law
Law & Tech Talk (LTT) Series by Hamad Bin Khalifa University, Collage of Law
2021______Doha, Qatar

Art has evolved in tandem with developments in technology. With the emergence of Artificial Intelligence, however, we have computers creating art in a way that could minimize, or even eliminate, human input. Is the result actually art? Who is the artist? Who owns the work, particularly if it reflects other art or is the result of an algorithm?

This session will explore these issues largely from the perspective of three Education City artists, each of whom has been at the forefront of their field with one of them, a computer engineer by training, using AI to create new works. The legal implications of their work and analysis will also be addressed.

Ephemeral vs Permanent | Hadeer Omar x Yasmeen Suleiman | 25 Years of VCUarts Qatar
Premiered Jan 19, 2024

In the second episode of The Tasmeem Doha podcast, we examine ephemerality vs permanence. Together with assistant professors at VCUarts Qatar Hadeer Omar and Yasmeen Suleiman, we think about Tasmeem Doha as a maverick event that has fundamentally transformed the region’s design scene. They describe how university life has been changed by Tasmeem Doha and what they see to be the temporary and permanent day-to-day legacies of the conference. And they celebrate the invaluable community, connections and conversations that are born out of Tasmeem Doha in each of its renditions.

The pandemic brought profound challenges for artists and performers, but also an opportunity to experiment and to reinvent the way they work. What are the creative ways artists embraced digital tools in new ways, and are they here to stay? Has this led to a wider acceptance and appreciation from viewers?
